HTC Explorer Review: In Depth

Recombu
16 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The HTC Explorer represents great value for money. It’s very easy to get to grips with and the layout is easily customisable. Overall performance is very smooth for a phone of this price and will more than satisfy those after an inexpensive pay-as-you-go phone.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Easy to customise, Nice price
  • Cons: Camera isn’t the best, No flash, Maybe too small for some

  • Conclusion: It's not really an object of desire, but as a solidly built and well equipped introduction to smartphones, the HTC Explorer could end up on an awful lot of shopping lists this year, and rightfully so.
  • Pros: Android on a budget, sturdy case, good battery life
  • Cons: Modest spec, camera quite poor

HTC Explorer

Pocket Lint
26 January 2012
  • Conclusion: This might not be a phone for power-Android users, but it's a likable enough handset for most use. It will certainly appeal to those who want a phone that can do more than their old Nokia thing that they haven't upgraded for years, and it should do so without scaring anyone making the switch.
  • Pros: Cheap, small, clear calls, great for occasional users, good battery life
  • Cons: Screen is a little too small, screen looks bad with moving content

HTC Explorer Review

3g
16 January 2012
  • Summary: HTC’s aim is to encourage newbies to try out smartphones, and with its simple email, net and apps and a neat £130 pricetag, the HTC Explorer represents a decent choice.
  • Pros: A neat phone that is easy to find your way around and is a good price for anyone wanting to enter the smartphone arena
  • Cons: The chip is rather sluggish and surfing the net is not much fun on that small display, which has disappointing resolution too

Review: HTC Explorer

Techtree
12 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Equipped with the latest version of the Sense 3.5 UI , you can expect a pretty good response from this phone. The lightest touch will produce results, but with a slight amount of lag. However, it is acceptable for a budget Android.
  • Pros: Intuitive interface; Cute looks; Reasonably affordable; Nice battery life.
  • Cons: Icons are a bit small; No Gorilla Glass; Screen attracts fingerprints; Weak loudspeaker; Could have done with a faster CPU; Inbuilt file manager missing.

  • Pros: A compact handset that blends functionality with a non-threatening navigation, and at a price point that should suit someone looking to take that first plunge into smartphones
  • Cons: The processor is slower than other recent HTC models, web browsing on the smaller screen isn?t that impressive and the screen resolution lacks sparkle

HTC Explorer Review

Tech2
11 April 2011
  • Summary: The HTC Explorer is priced at Rs.10,498, and at this price it competes with the likes of the Motorola Fire XT and the LG Optimus One . The XT was an absolute dud but the Optimus One is still going strong more than a year after its launch.

HTC Explorer im Test: ordentliches Android-Smartphone der Einstiegs-Klasse

CNET
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Na klar: Wenn ein Handy zum Statussymbol avanciert, ist die Auswahl leicht. Sündhaft teure Smartphones mit Dual- oder gar Quad-Core-Prozessoren müssen her, mit gigantischen Displays und Kamera-Auflösungen, die der Spiegelreflex-Kamera von Papa Konkurrenz machten Aber wer einfach nur ein gutes Handy...
  • Pros: stabile Konstruktion, taschenkompatible Abmessungen, günstiger Preis, leicht bedienbare Oberfläche
  • Cons: niedrige Display-Auflösung, untermotorisierter Prozessor, optionale Speicherkarte unbedingt notwendig
